One Ebere Nwankwo (18) and Job Martins (20) were arraigned before a Lagos State Magistrates Court on Thursday 6th October 2016 for practicing homosexuality, a crime which attracts a prison sentence of 14 years as punishment in Nigeria.
The duo were said to have been nabbed in August 2016 at Goshen Estate Ikate Lekki by passersby who reported the matter to police.
According to the charge read out by the prosecuting police officer,
“The defendants were caught having sex through the anus and when asked why they engaged in such an act, Nwankwo said Martins, whom he described as his boyfriend, forced him to have sex with him through the anus because he took his ATM to withdraw N22,000 from his account.
“Nwankwo said he had promised to pay him back the money when he collects his salary, but that Martins replied that he didn’t want the money, but gave him a condition which was to allow him to have sex with him (Nwankwo) through the anus.”
